The Super Bowl of Fashion
Runways may set the trends for every new season, but the street style spotted before and after each show is equally telling of what the fashion future holds. Look outside of the shows and at after-parties, where style setters delivered the top trends of New York Fashion Week 2022, standing out in timeless classics, sport-inspired track pants, HOT PINK platforms, and all that glitters, from cowboy boots to the infamous moon bag.
Metallics were predicted to be one of the most sought-after trends of 2022, so seeing a sea of silver, sequins, sparkles, and everything shiny at NYFW wasn’t a surprise. Mary Janes, loafers, and cowboy boots, all cast in a silver shade were eye catching, regardless of what the rest of the outfit entailed. Some is good, more is better and too much is perfect. If you don’t have your moon bag yet, you better start shopping.
What about athluxury? This sporty aesthetic is more dressed up than ever before, thanks to key pieces like Prada’s coveted white tank top and Bottega Veneta’s chunky platform boots. Adidas has solidified itself as the hero brand of athletic attire with collaborations with luxury fashion houses such as Gucci and Wales Bonner. Track pants, Nike and Adidas logos, and jerseys have transformed from workout wear into something brand new.
The new Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, releasing in 2023 has inspired the latest fashion aesthetic: Barbiecore. Trending this summer, street style heavily featured the saturated hue. From utilizing it as a pop of color with shoes and accessories to full-blown hot pink looks, hot pink was everywhere. It’s Barbie’s authentic playfulness and bright, bold color palette that inspire people to inject pink into their daily routines. BTW, she even has her own signature ‘Barbie Pink’ Pantone shade, PMS 219. Go girl.
There’s always room in your wardrobe for timeless classics, and this street style season, pieces like notable knitwear and modern midiskirts reigned supreme, including those from Prada. Chic, wear-everywhere black sandals are proved season-less as seen on this street styler. Also debuting, is a cashmere sweater from Guest in Residence by Gigi Hadid. More than just sophisticated ready-to-wear, you can also expect classic accessories like this lady bag and a slingback pump from Prada to top off your forever stylish outfit.
We hope that you’ve been inspired by the street style, the reality of fashion off the runway. Perhaps it’s just as much fun to catch the in-between-moments where everyone reveals their creative interpretation outside the shows. No tickets required.
